Music review -Thirundhuda Kadhal Thiruda

Music Review (Tamil) - Thirundhudaa Kaadhal Thiruda
Composer : Ranjith Melepatt

Oliyin, beautifully crafted tune with power backing vocals by Karthik and Chinmayi. Composer handled the orchestration also very well especially violin bits in second interlude and song ending along with Karthick showing carnatic prowess. Salaigal is purely V.V.Prasanna show with amazing ghazal oriented songs, ably supported by ambient instruments like tabla dominating throughout the song along with flute, veena and harmonium makes this song best in lines of yen uyirey from Maalai pozhudhin mayakathiley.In Sudumanal parappil, Ranjith goes for the raw village folk by multiple singers with instruments inclined to typical hindustani songs especially tabla. Loved the nadhaswaram bits by the way and in some places due to lyrics feels like malayalam songs. Finally Aravind meets Aparna (theme song) is a engaging instrumental piece, with Veena, flute, Tabla and magical violin along with carnatic touches.Truly mindblowing. Reminds me of 90's Rahman sound. Fabulous ending to the wonderful album.

Verdict: Truly Commendable debut by Ranjith Melepatt. Album showcases his classically oriented talent which i always like. Hope he continues his best in the future albums, surely one of the best debut in recent times.

My rating: 8.5/10

Pick of the album: Salaigal, Oliyin, Aravind meets Aparna (Theme)
